Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hello again friends! I created this card for the Lawn Fawnatics Blog Challenge #146 - Color Challenge. I found this to be one of the harder challenges. Maybe I was overthinking it - something I tend to do but I am happy with the way it turned out.

I decided that I would ink my own background paper using the Lawn Fawn Plaid Stencil. This is one of my favorite stencils because it is so versatile. I used Distress Oxide Ink in: Mustard Seed, Prize Ribbon, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.

After I got it all inked up, tragedy struck. I thought that I had pulled out the right die to cut is to a standard card size but pulled out a Stitched Rectangle Frame die instead. Argh! So it quickly turned into a shaker card. While I had my inks out, I went ahead and inked up some white paper with each of the different colors to use for my die cut elements.

For the sentiment, I used the Giant Happy Birthday die with Prize Ribbon and Mustard Seed inked paper. The balloons are cut from the Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables. The cupcake is cut from the Stitched Cupcake die.

I think this will be a great card for just the right birthday. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
